In other words, the Dao Control Brush and Taixuan Codex were two divine artifacts that complemented each other!
On the other hand, great figures like Wu Xuechan, Xue Ling, Xu Tuo, Cai Ya, and the others were clearly aware that this pair of divine artifacts was extraordinary. They were precious treasures that the Divine Institute’s Dean carried with him as he fought throughout the world all those years ago. They possessed unfathomable might.
Moreover, there were countless legends related to this pair of divine artifacts.
It was exactly because of this that the cultivators in the outside world were so shocked upon noticing that the Dao Control Brush was in Donghuang Yinxuan’s possession.
None of them had imagined that the Divine Institute’s Dean would actually entrust such a precious treasure to Donghuang Yinxuan!
After all, no matter how extraordinary and outstanding Donghuang Yinxuan was, his status was inferior when compared to the great figures at the Imperial Monarch Realm within the Divine Institute.
Yet he was able to obtain such a precious treasure. This clearly showed that the Divine Institute’s Dean had placed high hopes on Donghuang Yinxuan in the Dao Discussion.
Donghuang Yinxuan held the Taixuan Codex in one hand and the Dao Control Brush in the other. He drew in midair as it he was writing a literary piece of the Grand Dao.
In an instant, a ‘禁’ character that was suffused with a pitch black glow appeared in midair. It emanated an obscure, icy cold, and deathly silent supreme aura that intended to shackle the world!
At this moment, the airflow, space, light, dust…. Everything within the Dao Engraved Battlefield seemed to have been shackled, and they fell into a strange deathly silent state.
The cultivators in the outside world couldn’t help but gasp. It was merely a single character, yet it seemed like a brand of the Grand Dao, and it possessed boundless terrifying might that exceeded their imagination.
“He bears the luck of the Divine Institute and writes its words via its divine techniques! This kid has actually obtained the supreme inheritance of the Divine Institute!” Wu Xuechan’s brows raised while he sat up straight, and a wisp of a piercingly cold glow arose in his eyes. He was clearly aware what this meant. If nothing unexpected happened, then Donghuang Yinxuan would succeed the position of Dean in the Divine Institute once he became accomplished!
At practically the exact same moment that Donghuang Yinxuan executed the ‘禁’ character, the Talisman Armament in Chen Xi’s hand suddenly emanated a strange fluctuation that swept out like a ripple.
Boundless divine talismans shot out like a dense rain, and it formed the movement of the heavens and the earth, the circulation of the stars, the passage of time, the alternation between generations, and various other grand phenomena. They coiled around the Talisman Armament and seemed as if they revealed all the boundless variations and changes in the cosmos.
Talisman Armament — the profundities of formation!
As soon as this scene appeared, even if they were outside the battlefield, a wisp of indescribable shock still couldn’t help but arise in their hearts. It was like they’d witnessed the transition between the Grand Dao and Creation, and it displayed boundless profundities and truths.
Even all the great figures couldn’t help but reveal surprised expressions while they felt shocked in their hearts. What divine artifact is this? It actually possesses such might? Why have I never heard of it?
This was the might of the Talisman Armament after it transformed into a Natural Spirit Treasure!
The Talisman Armament was a treasure made from Divine Talismans, and it was unlike the divine artifacts in the world. It possessed the potential to endlessly improve its might.
Later on, Chen Xi utilized a Natural Spirit Foundation supplemented it with a secret technique to transform the Talisman Armament into a Natural Spirit Treasure. So, when compared to the past, it had two unprecedentedly rare abilities, formation and devour!
It formed the profundities and truths of the cosmos and it devoured the vitality of everything. Not only did it possess shocking offensive ability, it could devour other treasures to improve its own might!
Amongst the Natural Spirit Treasures in the world, there were almost none that possessed such might, and this was the most formidable and mysterious aspect of the Talisman Armament since it transformed into a Natural Spirit Treasure.
At this moment, even Wu Xuechan couldn’t help but exclaim with admiration in his heart when he witnessed this scene. Little Junior Brother… actually refined the Talisman Armament into a Natural Spirit Treasure! This is something that has never been done in the sect!
What treasure is that? The eyes of the other Daolords narrowed with a trace of surprise within them. They were naturally clearly aware of Oracle Mountain’s Talisman Armaments, but they’d similarly discerned that the Talisman Armament in Chen Xi’s hand should be called a Natural Spirit Treasure!
But a Natural Spirit Treasure was a treasure born within the Chaos, and it was impossible to be created by man. What’s going on?
A Natural Spirit Foundation!
In practically an instant, all of these Daolords thought of a reason, and all sorts of emotions couldn’t help but arise in their hearts.
“Where the Marking of the Dao reaches, all shall be shackled and destroyed!” It took a long time to describe, yet it actually happened in an instant. At this moment, Donghuang Yinxuan had let out a long howl, and activated the ‘禁’ character to crush down at Chen Xi.
A strand of pitch black divine light swept out like a ripple. Everywhere it passed, space was restrained while light, airflow, and even divine radiance was frozen on the spot.
A terrifying aura of deathly silence swiftly suffused the entire battlefield, and it swept towards Chen Xi at an unparalleled speed.
This was Donghuang Yinxuan’s trump card. At this moment, he’d executed it for the sake overcoming the stalemate they were in and restraining Chen Xi in one go. He didn’t intend to continue being locked in combat with Chen Xi like he had been until now.
At practically the exact same moment, the Talisman Armament flashed through the sky and formed numerous sword shaped talisman markings that densely overlapped around the Talisman Armament, causing his Sword Insight to grow even fiercer and sharper. When looked at from afar, it caused others to feel horrified as if they’d been stabbed through and through.
This was the profundity of formation possessed by the Talisman Armament.
It could transform the might possessed by the Talisman Armament into all sorts of different energies according to Chen Xi’s will.
Just like this very moment. Donghuang Yinxuan had utilized the ‘禁’ Dao Marking with the intention of restraining and annihilating Chen Xi, and Chen Xi’s reaction was very simply — he intended to destroy this restriction!
In a very natural manner, the talisman markings formed by the Talisman Armament possessed the strongest energy of destruction, and it supplemented Chen Xi’s cultivation at the 3rd level of the Sword Emperor Realm. Coupled with the most fierce and swift attack within the Profound Heart Sword Technique, the Dismemberment Style, it had risen the might of this attack to the extreme.
When this strike of the sword shot over, the rippling pitch black energy of restriction had suddenly shaken before its instantly became sluggish.
Hmm? Donghuang Yinxuan’s brows raised while he circulated his full strength, causing the ‘禁’ character in midair to incessantly drone and emanate deafening rumbling. It roared like a vast and mighty river, and it actually shook the entire battlefield to the point the battlefield trembled slightly!
However, Chen Xi’s attack didn’t disperse. It formed into even more ‘restriction destruction’ talisman markings that overlapped on the strand of sword qi, causing its might to improve once more.
In an instant, their attacked entered into a stalemate in midair, causing a myriad of strands of divine radiance to spray and sweep towards the surroundings.
When he saw this, Chen Xi didn’t hesitate to swiftly slash with the Banisher that resided in his right hand.
This strike seemed like a torrent of obliteration had been sent down from the sky, and it crushed space and time as it charged over ferociously.
Bang! Bang! Bang!
Under the circumstance that he’d utilized both his swords, a string of extremely ear piercing sounds of explosions instantly resounded through the heavens and the earth. The ‘禁’ that floated in midair had been blasted into pieces in the blink of an eye, and it vanished without a trace.
Donghuang Yinxuan was caught off guard, and he was shaken by this to the point of staggering back while the vital blood in his entire body roiled without end.
The hearts of all the spectators in the outside world trembled, and all of them were astounded by how formidable Chen Xi’s attack was.
“How could this be possible!?” In Convergence Hall, Chi Song’zi couldn’t help but cry out. But in the next moment, his entire body stiffened while his voice stopped abruptly.
Because at this exact same instant, Daolord Xuan Ming had turned around and glanced at him with a dignified and indifferent gaze. Even though it was merely a glance, it shocked Chi Song’zi to the point of immediately falling silent like a cicada in the winter.
“Haha. Anything is possible in the world.” Wu Xuechan couldn’t help but chuckle when he witnessed this.
“Hmph! The outcome hasn’t been decided yet. Grand Lord shouldn’t get happy too early.” Xuan Ming spoke coldly.
“Then continue watching the battle.” Wu Xuechan smiled indifferently. Actually, he was rather filled with admiration towards his little junior brother’s display because it had really exceeded his expectations.
“What sword is that?” Donghuang Yinxuan had a solemn, surprised, and bewildered expression. He was utterly unable to imagine that he would actually still be unable to suppress Chen Xi even after he withdrew the Dao Control Brush.
This had exceeded his expectations.
“I’ll naturally tell you the answer once you’ve lost.” As he spoke, Chen Xi’s figure flashed, and he attacked once more with his dual swords in hand.
“Hmph! Do you think that this is the limit of my ability?” Donghuang Yinxuan’s face sank. The Taixuan Codex droned as row after row of mysterious markings of the Dao sprayed from within it. He controlled these markings of the Dao with the Dao Control Brush, and they emanated brilliant light in midair!
As he shouted loudly, a Dao Marking shot out towards Chen Xi, and every single one of them possessed supreme divine might and were completely different.
When looked at from afar, these Dao Markings were like numerous peerless experts that charged ceaselessly while emanating monstrous might.
Obviously, Donghuang Yinxuan had been infuriated at this moment, and his killing intent had been completely aroused. Every single move of his was unfathomable, and he seemed to intend to crush Chen Xi in one go.
“No matter how many moves you have, they are all in vain.” A wisp of a piercingly cold arc arose on the corners of Chen Xi’s mouth, and he emanated supreme and imposing divine might. He stopped holding back as well, and he strode through space to intercept Donghuang Yinxuan’s attacks.
The Dao Marking of descend was slashed into pieces.
The Dao Marking of fight was slashed into pieces.
The Dao Marking of army was slashed into pieces.
Under the astounded gazes of everyone, Chen Xi was like a peerless exalt of the sword that crushed everything in his way with ease. No matter what lethal attack Donghuang Yinxuan executed, all of them were crushed by Chen Xi and were unable to harm him at all.
Conversely, as he continued the attack, Donghuang Yinxuan’s expression gradually turned gloomy, and he stared fixedly at Chen Xi as if he was meeting Chen Xi for the first time.
He was too surprised!
The combat strength Chen Xi revealed at this moment wasn't just a little bit stronger than when he fought Wang Zhong, and it was simply like he’d become a completely different person.
All of these changes had instantly caught Donghuang Yinxuan off guard, and it caused his heart to be filled by both shock and fury.
At this moment, it wasn’t just Donghuang Yinxuan who was shocked. All the cultivators in the outside world couldn’t help but be dumbstruck and stunned speechless when they witnessed such a scene.
That was Donghuang Yinxuan, an existence that had ascended into the top four of the Dao Discussion, and he even possessed unparalleled divine artifacts like the Taixuan Codex and Dao Control Brush. Under such circumstances, he was actually unable do anything against Chen Xi’s attack!?
Who could have imagined such a thing would happen?
“Exactly how much strength has this fellow concealed?” Leng Xinghun muttered while his brows were knit together. He suddenly noticed that he actually had an even deeper feeling of being unable to see through Chen Xi.
“So, he really had concealed a great deal of strength….” Wang Zhong who’d been eliminated from the Dao Discussion was constantly watching this battle. So, when he witnessed Chen Xi’s seemingly unparalleled assault, his heart couldn’t help but feel heavy.
He finally understood that his loss wasn’t undeserved at all because Chen Xi was way stronger than he’d expected!
